Advice to Applicants
Can you apply?
Please read carefully the criteria for eligibility (see Scholarships webpage). You will waste your time applying if you graduate in 2013, if you are not 'normally resident' in Gaza or the West Bank (including Jerusalem), or if you do not fulfil any of the other conditions for applying.
Men and women are equally eligible to apply. We welcome applications for any Master's course, except the MBA, at Durham University. If you are interested in the MSc course in Public Policy and Health, please contact Durham.Palestine@durham.ac.uk before you apply.
We reiterate that the Trust cannot offer accommodation or support for a husband, wife or children of the scholarship holder. The allowances are sufficient for only one person. But please read the section on Family on the Apply for Master's Scholarship webpage.
What courses are available?
It is pointless to apply for courses that do not exist at Durham University. For instance, there are no Departments of Dentistry, Agriculture, Art, Journalism or Architecture. Some departments (e.g. Biological Sciences and Chemistry) do not offer any Taught Master's courses.
To see a full list of Master's Degree courses available at Durham University, go here to get an alphabetical list. Under heading 'Course Level' check (click) the radio button 'Postgraduate Taught' so that each alphabetical list will show only postgraduate taught courses. Alternatively, you might find it easier to go to our webpage List of Master's Degree Courses.
If you find a course title that interests you, click on it to go to a Summary page for that course. Then click on the 'Course Content' link. Here you can ensure that the course suits your needs and that you are eligible to apply for it. Some courses restrict entry to graduates of a particular subject. Other courses admit graduates from a range of degree subjects or with appropriate work experience.
All Schools and Departments provide an email address for contact if you need clarification on any of these issues.
